COVID will likely be extra lethal
World Health Organization (WHO) Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus today announced a dire warning of the COVID coronavirus as it and its variants make its way into year two.
- Despite vaccinations around the world, the World Health Organization predicts that year two of COVID will be worse than year one.
- WHO goes so far as to say that this year will be even more deadly.
- Although new guidelines from the CDC state that masks are not needed for full vaccination, many say it is premature to make this announcement.
The WHO Director General said: “We are on track that the second year of this pandemic will be far more deadly than the first.”
In Japan, a state of emergency of the coronavirus was found in three other regions just 10 weeks before the Olympic Games. Tokyo and other areas are already in dire straits until the end of May, and Hiroshima, Okayama and northern Hokkaido, which will host the Olympic marathon, are joining them.
Japan is currently battling its fourth wave of the coronavirus, which is taking a heavy toll on its medical system. A petition with more than 350,000 signatures has been submitted calling for the Games to be canceled.
In Taiwan, entertainment venues such as bars, nightclubs, karaoke lounges, internet cafes, saunas, teahouses, hostess clubs and dance clubs, and sports centers and libraries in Taipei were closed after a wave of COVID infections broke out that began among a group of pilots.
